That's a real shame! They did some very good SACDs, and other stuff. No telling what we'll be like by the time the economy straightens out. Posted Image

Telarc really had a great impact on the development of the redbook CD format. Many early recordings were lambasted as harsh and shrill by the critics - CD producers merely did a quick move-over from analog tapes. Telarc spent a lot of time and effort showing how you could make really good quality CDs and many of the other CD producers (e.g. Sony et al.) appear to have adopted many of Telarc's practices.

Time moves on. Telarc appears to have worked its way out of its niche.

Very sad. For years Telarc has been putting the hammer down making some of the best recordings ever. I still remember those early 1812 Overture lps, that those cannon shots could only be reproduced at that time, on the very best high end systems.
I pray there is a way they can save themmselves. No one can come in and replicate what they have started and created.

How can this happen?
